JEL (real name is Jacob) started his experiments back in 1985. The name "Anna in the dark" was a millenium change and a fresh new take on things. AITD is electronic music with varied influences ranging from indie to hardcore. "I like when music is so strong you get blasted" says JEL and AITD really does that. Most music is strong on beats and dance (whether ecstatic or chilled) friendly. It tends to be hard and direct, but at the same time very subtle and deep. Despite this, AITD does not conform and makes the odd one every now and then, "I just make what I think sounds cool. I dont really pay attention to what genre Im moving about in. If my spine chills...he-he, then Im doing the right stuff". JEL, who dj's as DJ JEL and produce his own tracks as Anna in the dark, seems to hold a little anarchist in his stomach but is very straightforward and down to earth. When JEL dj's its mostly hard, dark and dreamy stuff (dark d'n'b, hardhouse-detroit, happyharcore-hardcore, chill-out) AITD is a name you wont forget (the mere name "Anna in the dark" is so eerie it makes you chill) once JEL has touched your soul.
